Please remember to thank the soldier that you know who returned from war. A lot of them are having a hard time adjusting to civilian life.
- More soldiers killed themselves last year in Afghanistan than died in battle.
- A veteran from the Iraq/Afghanistan war commits suicide every 65 minutes here in the USA. Every hour of every day, holidays, weekends, nights, every ****ing hour we suffer another casualty of war.
So remember that vet may seem okay and well adjusted but it aint going to hurt anything to tell them you appreciate their service, glad they are back home. Offer to help in any way that they could possibly reach out to you and maybe just save them from a really bad decision.
